Most people when they imagine their dream home, have an image of a huge mansion by the beach, or a city penthouse. Personally I love our little cottage in the trees. We have a very small home in the gorgeous Australian Whitsundays. We don't have buckets of money to spend on it but plan on doing the house up, one room at a time. In the meanwhile I have to find room for mothering, housekeeping, and companionship! Like for all of us, it's a fine balancing act!
The house when we bought it. Lots to do!
